In our continuation of the Butler Speaks, today I will be sharing his snippet about housekeeping. On Wednesday I shared his snippet on house-cleaning. I never knew there was a difference but in his world there is.
Mr. MacPherson says:
Housekeeping is the day-to-day work that goes into tidying, reorganizing and detailing rooms in a home after it has been properly cleaned. Housekeeping is that extra touch that goes into good presentation.
This includes fluffing pillows, positioning furniture correctly, organizing magazines and books, properly making a bed and so on.
Without good housekeeping, a clean room is only a clean room, not necessarily an inviting one. I'm not saying clean is bad- it's simply NOT ENOUGH. A good housekeeper has a FINE TOUCH and a KEEN EYE for detail (I love this)! A clean room can only reach its full potential with good housekeeping.
I hope you enjoyed these tips from Mr. MacPherson. In my next post I will be sharing his thoughts on deep-cleaning! Until then I hope you enjoy this video from Sir John Richardson. I have watched this a million times. I can't get enough of it!
